June

The modern gemstones associated with the month of  June are alexandrite and pearl.  The pearl is the oldest known gem.  Unlike all other gems, it is derived from living tissue, and is only found in oysters and molluscs.  A pearl symbolizes peace, virtue, nobility, purity and innocence. Moonstone is a ancient alternative gemstone symbolizing this month. Moonstone is believed to aid communication by promoting clear thinking, inspiration or receptivity as well as to assist in the fulfilment of one's own destiny.
